    AMD seems to be having problems with leakage in their new processors a common problem with shrinking components where electricity can literally burrow out of a semiconductor and even blow entire circuits. A guy over at Investors Hub named wbmw located the problem in AMD's thermal design guide.

    I dont know about how reliable this is....... this was posted on an Investors website.... which that site deals with penny stocks for the most part.

    And not only that, but it was posted in the intel forum

    If this is true....interesting. If not....ehh AMD has a good 65 nm fab process. However I think I've seen things on the web about leakage, but maybe it was this article.

    All news are rumors prior to verification by the company itself ( whether its AMD or others ). And i doubt that this could surface in an AMD forum for obvious reasons.

    I am sorry.. I re read my comment, and it kind of came off like I was criticizing you.

    I wasn't trying to do that, I was questioning the validity of the poster and where it was posted at.

    Sorry
